  • Felt like I was cheating with the uptight & not-as-great-in-bed cousin of La Carnita & Grand Electric.
  • It's a tapas restaurant. Portions are naturally small and overpriced. Our server was not very friendly. Drinks never arrived, water not refilled, empty plates not removed. Ain't worth the hype IMHO.
  • Guacamole is made table side. Ceviche de Atun is so good.
  • Great for a margarita and a few share plates!
  • Nice atmosphere. The tacos were great but a bit pricy and the service is a not slow.
  • Kidding says it's not, but totally open for lunch on the weekends.
  • Get. The. Dessert. Platter.
  • one of the coolest interior I've ever seen. overpriced for their small portions. fish tacos are delicious, the pork tacos and burritos were good.
  • Margaritas are fantastic. Go for the mango or traditional one.
  • If only the tacos were as good as the decor.
  • Ensalade destelleria and baja tacos were excellent! Beef cheeks were bland. I liked the sauce in crab fritters. Got recommended Okanagan Spring pale ale beer which I loved. Service was two thumbs up
  • As a vegetarian, guacamole is AMAZING! Other than that, it's very bland. I recommend Fonda Lola instead for vegetarians.
  • Yes to the seven course meal.
  • Baja fish tacos were GREAT. Octopus taco was disappointing. Guacamole was fresh as usual. Mulled wine was great especially since we were eating outside in winter =)
  • Pricey tapas restaurant and small portions but the food is really good!
  • Tequila and Mezcal drinks are a house specialty. Extensive list. Beautiful indoor space and outdoor patio (w/fireplaces!).
  • Not the greatest food. Way too pricey for what you get. Good service and a nice outdoor patio space.
  • Guac made table side and the churros were amazing. Looking forward to our next visit!
  • Very cool interior and patio, so many details it's incredible. Food is good as well as service. Get ready, it will be hot!
  • Get the crab cakes. For the love of God and all that is holy, get the crab cakes!
